Line Up

Most outlets predicting the following;

--------------De Gea------------
Lindelof--Bailly--Smalling--Shaw
-------------Matic--------------
-------Fred--------Pereira--------
Mata-----------------------Sanchez
-------------Rashford-------------

Far from ideal, but Leicester will likely sit back looking to hit us on the break.

The worry, as always, will be width. Lindelof and Shaw aren't gonna bomb down the flanks and Sanchez/ Mata like to go walkies.

I think we will win, 2-0 and I'm gonna go with a Sanchez & Rashford goal.

No Darmian so he's leaving. We've taken the number 5 shirt off Rojo too. Could that imply we may go back in for a CB in January? Certainly seems that way.

Seems logical.

No I think Rojo requested it. He wears 16 for his country, think the number means something to him.

Ah fair enough. Didn't know that.

We need to be scouting for a worldy. There's someone out there for us. That's why we employ scouts. How hard is it to recommend Harry Maguire n Alderweireld FFS. I could do that job.

Sounds like Pogba may start tonight. Lukaku Young to make bench.

It's not that terrible of a team really.

Looks like we could see Pogba starting then so maybe a front 6 like this;

---------- Perriera -----------

---- Fred ---------- Pogba -----

Mata ----- Rashford ------ Sanchez

The OPs lineup would crush Lester.
5-0 for me.

Mike,

That lineup looks great to me.

I know I'm usually at the naive end of positivity regarding United, but I have felt for a while that one of the major factors affecting our style of play and team cohesion has been MF.

Pogba can be great but has tended to switch off at times in many games.

Matic has been good, a solid DM, but too slow and cannot press.

The rest of our MF options all have shortcomings that result in lack of cohesion.

Hererra looked good when pressing in a more advanced role next to Pog at times but inconsistent and fell out of favour.

The three you've listed have rightly been pointed out to me by Shugs and a couple others as probably being too attacking.

This may be true, however, the energy and movement of Fred and Andreas can give us a much stronger pressing game/ defend further up the field and Pogba showed a more responsible side at the WC that indicates he's capable of this too.

Pogba can make a killer pass and open up a defence. Made some great balls through to Zlatan the season prior. Andreas has a real dynamism too which gives us more attacking options from MF that we've lacked for a while. I don't know enough of Fred first hand, but most on here think he's good at bringing the ball out of defence with speed.

A much more aggressive MF will take some pressure off the defence, free up our often very conservative FBs and in turn may help us control the ball more.

Fred and Andreas still have a lot to prove for us so I don't expect the above to come to fruition, but I can see the possibility.
